Although labeled as an inshore family of rods, these models feature crossover actions and configurations for any freshwater application.

Below is a brief breakdown of the new family, including various applications and techniques. For more on the GIS series, please visit, tforods.com.

 

SWC/ SWS 693-1: 

Fast action rods that load further down the tip increasing casting efficiency with lighter lures and in sight- casting situations. A great medium-light powered rod with a split grip, cork handle for speckled trout, redfish and flounder.

SWC/ SWS 694-1: 

The all-purpose, split-grip rod for the flats or deep wading. Excels at throwing surface and sub-surface baits, with the ideal length and balance to achieve maximum casting efficiency. Perfect for pounding plugs along the mangroves, chasing fish around pillars and docks or chucking Corky’s along the Texas coast.

SWC 6104-1: 

Based off of the popular GTS SHS rod, the SWC 6104-1 has a fast, stiff tip. This action adds movement to soft plastics with minimal effort, best suited for jig-heads with small soft plastics and spooks/jerkbaits with a single hook.

SWC 704-1 and 705-/ SWS 704-1 and 705-1: 

These full-cork grip rods cover a wide variety of scenarios. Perfect for bait under a popping cork or a buck tail rod for snook, redfish and tarpon in the estuaries or along the beach.

SWC 793-1, 794-1 and 795-1/ SWS 793-1, 794-1 and 795-1

The medium fast actions of these longer models are designed to achieve maximum casting distance in the most efficient manner, while ensuring a solid hook-set when fishing lures with treble hooks. Want to rip a Rat-L-Trap® along the jetty? Need a few extra feet of distance out of that cracked crab or sand flea on the flats? These rods are up for the challenge, with enough power in the butt to haul in that big jack or bluefish.

SWS 7116-1 and 7117-1: 

Pick your power and throw large baits the distance, with the confidence to fight that beast back to the boat or shore. Chasing crashing birds along the surf and need to get that extra few feet? Grab a Pencil Popper® or X-Rap® Subwalk and the 7116-1 to cover some serious water. Both models are perfect for throwing large artificial lures as well as bait for jacks, tarpon and cobia.
